    A bi-coastal, 24-hour news operation, Morning Edition is hosted by NPR's Steve Inskeep in Washington, D.C., and Renee Montagne at NPR West in Culver City, CA.

    Hosted by award-winning journalist David Brown, “Texas Standard” explores the world of news, economics, innovation and culture, every day — from a Texas perspective — in a fresh, contemporary, conversational style.

  • 3:00 pm: Town Square with Ernie Manouse

  • 4:00 pm: All Things Considered

    The biggest stories of the day, thoughtful commentaries, insightful features on the quirky and the mainstream in arts and life, music and entertainment, all brought alive through sound.

  • 6:30 pm: Marketplace

    Marketplace, hosted by Kai Ryssdal, is the only daily business news program originating in Los Angeles. The 30-minute program, with a reporting style that is lively and unexpected, airs weekday evenings on public radio stations across the United States.

  • 7:00 pm: Fresh Air

    Though Fresh Air has been categorized as a "talk show," it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits Fresh Air with "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights." And a variety of top publications count Gross among the country's leading interviewers. The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators.

    Think, with host Krys Boyd, features in-depth interviews with compelling guests, covering a wide variety of topics ranging from history, politics, current events, science, technology and trends to food and wine, travel, adventure and entertainment.

  • 9:00 pm: This American Life

    One of our problems from the start has been that when we try to describe This American Life in a sentence or two, it just sounds awful. For instance: each week we choose a theme and put together different kinds of stories on that theme. That doesn't sound like something we'd want to listen to on the radio, and it's our show.

  • 10:00 pm: BBC World Service

    The news of the world from the BBC.
